How to Live Longer with Heart Failure
November 20, 2020
A heart failure diagnosis does not mean that the heart has stopped. Also called congestive heart failure, blood flow from the heart slows down, creating a reduction in blood flow throughout the body, causing congestion in the body’s tissues. While there is no cure, advances in treatment options have helped an increasing number of patients survive for many years. Join Michael Zacharias, DO, heart failure specialist with University Hospitals Harrington Heart & Vascular Institute, to learn about this chronic condition that requires ongoing care management.
Participants will learn about the four stages of heart failure, including:
- Important signs and symptoms to monitor in each stage
- Recommended therapies, from medications to advanced surgical procedures
- Tips for maintaining quality of life
An audience question and answer segment is included.
